Venezuela Speaks! Voices from the Grassroots, published by PM Press with the support of Global Exchange, is a collection of interviews with activists and participants from across Venezuela's social movements. From community media to land reform; cooperatives to communal councils, from the labor movement to the Afro-Venezuelan network, Venezuela Speaks! sheds light on the complex realities within the Bolivarian Revolution. These interviews offer a compelling oral history of Venezuela's democratic revolution, from the bottom up. Co-authors Carlos Martinez, Michael Fox, and JoJo Farrell will be touring in California and the East Coast between January 10, 2010 and February 10, 2010.
